open up the back door. there is the proof she could easily get outside, there is the proof she was big enough and strong enough to open the door. you can't get anything better than that. >> judge jeane: our legal panel is with us now. diana, i'm going right to you. what about the fact that the judge starts today by saying i'm not going to let you get anything in or talk about sexual abuse by george anthony or lee anthony. were you surprised? >> no, in fact, i thought the glass was half full. i was shocked he let them talk about the drowning, honestly, there really wasn't an iota of evidence. if they have that evidence then every family that's not a pool and a child dies you getted to argue drowning. i was supposed the judge gave him that. different the box he sawed himself in and he's not a particularly great organizationed speaker, i thought he made some really good points. i wish shed gun-- i wished they were condensed now, when they quoted "to kill a mockingbird," i was thinking about washington-- >> was it a good idea for jose baez to refer to his on client as a lying no good slut.
